Important Academic Year Proposal Submission Deadlines

2020-2021 Proposal Submission Deadlines

  • March 15, 2021 is the academic year deadline for receipt of undergraduate proposals in the Faculty Senate Office for distribution to the Curriculum and Standards Committee.
  • April 15, 2021 is the last Faculty Senate Meeting of the academic year at which curricular reports may be presented for approval.  To meet this deadline, curricular proposals must have been approved no later than the April 8, 2021 Curriculum and Standards Committee meeting and the March 2021 Graduate Council meeting

CURRICULUM and STANDARDS COMMITTEE Refer to this page for monthly meeting dates and monthly submission deadlines.
GRADUATE COUNCIL Contact the Associate Dean of the Graduate School (deboef@uri.edu) for the Graduate Curriculum Committee meeting submission deadlines.

These submission dates assume that the proposals are accurate and complete. A proposal cannot be forwarded to a review committee if it contains errors or if required signatures or supplemental documents are lacking (e.g., overlap statements, cross-listing acknowledgment statements, revised syllabus, revised curriculum sheet).

It is advisable to initiate proposals twelve to eighteen months in advance. All proposals must first be reviewed and approved by the originating department and the college before being forwarded to the appropriate review committee.

When departments wait until the spring semester to submit a proposal for fall enrollment, there may not be sufficient time for the proposal to be fully approved before the end of the academic year.  Additionally, the full approval process may not be completed in time to meet University Catalog deadlines.

Meeting the submission deadline for a proposal to be included on a review committee agenda does not ensure that the proposal will be approved at that particular meeting.  Revisions might be required that will postpone approval of the proposal to a subsequent meeting.
